300 M.P.H. Motorcycle

Modern Mechanix June 1936

MOUNTED on spherical airwheels of moderate pressure, a recently designed super-motorcycle powered with twin motors is expected to shatter all existing speed marks for land vehicles. Speeds of more than 300 miles per hour will be reached without difficulty, its designer believes.

  1. Thank you for this.
    I really enjoy these pulps particularly the “Popular Mechanics” style. The ads are about as interesting as the articles. In this one, for example, you can learn law, patents, and grow girat tree frogs for resale and even get into potato chip manufacturing.
    Were these big businesses in the 1930s ?

  2. He a’n’t gonna be hittin’ no 300 mph with an open cockpit and his bare hand and open-sleeved arm hangin’ out. What kinda nitwit control yoke is that anyway? It’s gonna hit the canopy frame anytime he steers to starboard.

    Nitwit. “Get a horse.”
